Cobia Fishing Trips in Biloxi, Mississippi

What is Cobia?

If you’re looking for a delicious, mild-flavored fish that puts up a serious fight, you can’t go wrong with cobia!  This species of fish goes by many names, from region to region.  Depending on who you ask, it can be called any of the following: ling, lemonfish, black kingfish, black salmon, black bonito, cabio, crabeater—or even the colorful Biblical moniker of “prodigal son”.  Whatever you prefer to call them, cobia is special treat—a satisfying catch and a delight to eat.  

Cobia is known for its fighting spirit.  Even experienced anglers can find them a challenge to bring in, which is part of their appeal.  Cobia is a great fish for people who like to feel like they’ve accomplished something at the end of a fishing trip.  They’ll make you work for the honor of bringing them to the table!  This species averages at 20 to 30 pounds, but they can sometimes be much bigger, even up to a hundred pounds.

How Does Cobia Taste?

Many people have never tasted cobia, because it’s not as commonly found in restaurants and fish markets as many other species.  That’s certainly not a reflection on this fish’s flavor, but rather a result of the fact that they aren’t as easy to catch in the wild on a commercial scale.  

Cobia is popular with seafood lovers, who admire the nutty, slightly sweet flavor of the species.  They aren’t overly oily, yet are juicy enough to stay moist and delectable after cooking, whether you’re grilling, broiling, sautéing, or deep-frying your fish.  No matter what your palate, you can find a recipe for cobia that will cater to your specific preferences, because cobia pairs well with a wide variety of flavor profiles, seasoning blends, and sauces.  With a fish this delicious, you don’t need to be heavy-handed with the seasonings, and if you’re a fan of sushi, it’s worth noting that cobia can also be prepared and eaten raw!

When Is the Best Time to Fish for Cobia?

Cobia is a migratory species, though you can find them in the Gulf of Mexico all year.  Their peak season in the Biloxi area tends to be spring and fall, but the exact timing depends on the weather and resultant water temperature.  Generally speaking, along in the Mississippi Gulf Coast, your best bet for catching cobia while offshore fishing is March through May and again in September and October.
